And this is why it’s so difficult to get into any meaningful dialogue with nutters. They’re disingenuous and refuse to allow the facts to speak for themselves.
Personally, I don’t believe we have a sugar drink problem more than we have an exercise problem. But, again, its impossible to get into a meaningful dialogue, because the aim isn’t to make children healthier, the aim is to remove freedom.
The public service ad by First 5 California features an overweight girl drinking sugar with a straw, but the ad has been criticized because the child model’s weight was digitally altered to make her look fatter.
“They are taking a perfectly healthy little girl and Photoshopping her to make her look unhealthily obese,” Adweek media reporter Emma Bazilian told ABC News. “It’s no surprise that people are outraged at that.”
To give you an example of how disconnect these people are, we see the final two paras……
If you use real kids, you’re going to be called fat-shamers,” reporter Bazilian said. “On the other hand, if you take this kid and you Photoshop them, it’s really a no-win situation.”
But the latest ad, with its enhanced chubbiness and all, shows one thing is clear: People are talking about childhood obesity, which appears to be the point.
No, you idiot, we’re not talking about childhood obesity, we’re talking about deception to further one’s goals. Which is something the nutters of any stripe excel in. Activists, campaigners, nutters, whatever you wish to call them, are simply not to be trusted.
